Vincent Cremet

Welcome to my academic homepage. I am a former research and teaching assistant at EPFL (left in late 2006).

I am from France and did my scolarship in the universities of Lyon, Nancy and Paris. In early 2001 I went to Switzerland to start a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.

I received the diploma in late 2006. In my Ph.D. I formalized and proved sound a central part of the type system of Scala, an object-oriented programming language designed by my supervisor Martin Odersky and developped in his Programming Methods Laboratory.

Student Projects
During my PhD at EPFL I defined and supervised two student semester projects.
  • Generating Typing Proofs for Scaletta. Grégory Mermoud. Semester Project, June 2005. (pdf).
  • Recherche d'information dans un programme Scala. Roland Tchakoute. Semester Project, February 2004. (pdf).
Software Projects
  • Scaladoc. I have been the main developer of Scaladoc, a Javadoc-like documentation generator for Scala, until Scala reached version 2. In this project, I have been assisted by Stéphane Micheloud.
